Did you know that 80% of teachers are female? What about the fact that there’s more than 7 million teachers in the U.S.? More importantly, did you know teachers work, on average, more than 50 hours a week? These stats are just glimpses into the staggeringly impressive accomplishments of teachers. While this infographic focuses on the U.S., it’s important to remember that the rest of the world is performing equally important work in and out of the classroom.
If you’ve been wondering about some of the general statistics about the current state of teaching (like how many teachers work on Sundays), then this visualization is just what you need. Enjoy!
